Guestbook comments from the owner

Just wanted to send a note to tell you how nice the home is. You have done

a beautiful job in decorating the home. It is much more than we expected.

We have stayed at several VRBO rentals and I must say that this is the best.

You have made our stay and time with our family very special with your attention to detail. Thank you and we hope you have a nice holiday season.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in your beautiful home

  • 4 of 5

The house was great, absolutely beautiful view! It was very convenient for our needs. I would suggest you put dishes & silverware downstairs and the carpet needs cleaning.

We Loved IT

We loved our stay. The home is beautiful, well kept, comfy. I loved the view, location and will return again soon. Nice place to get away from it all.

Beautiful Views, Spacious Home

  • 5 of 5

You walk in and the view from the living area is simply breathtaking. And, it only gets better from there. Huge home with lots of sleeping options. Kitchen was stocked better than usual and the closeness to Hickory is a plus. Overall a wonderful place

Beautiful, comfortable home! Excellent value.

  • 5 of 5

As many reviewers said, the pictures don't do it justice! Very clean and comfortable home with plenty of space for the whole family.

We had three generations to accommodate for a week of adventures (hiking, rafting, etc) leading up to a family wedding nearby. We could not have designed a better home for everyone.

The bedrooms are spacious, beds and linens very comfortable, and the view was breathtaking. Barbara was very accommodating, as well.

If you need a place to stay in this area, you can't go wrong. Even smaller groups will find the value far superior to a hotel.

Our Son and Daghter In Law took us there to celebrate our 80th birthday. Had a great time. Our grandaugher and husband came and gandson and his girlfriend also celebrated it with us. Had a great time and the place is everybit as nice as it looks. The view is great and the house is well furnished and clean. Would love to do it again sometime.

Wonderfull relaxing place to call home

  • 5 of 5

My Family and I had a wonderful stay at Barbara's mountain retreat. My wife and I, our daughter her husband and their child and my sister. The house had a layout that allowed each of our groups a place to call their own allowing privacy when we wanted it. We also had plenty of room to gather and enjoy the large porch and views from the sunny 4 seasons area. This house really felt like our home away from home.

Stocked kitchen, just need your food and such, having the laundry was a great benefit. The playroom for the young children what a wonderful touch!

Barbara was very easy to contact and always responded back right away. we had some bad weather while we were there and the power went out, we contacted her she was able to make sure the outage was reported and then she followed up with us. She had plenty of candles in glass containers that could be used to light our way just like we would have had at our own home.

The house was very clean and inviting! This is the first thing you will notice when you come in, because of this, you feel comfortable right away!

We actually left an item behind did even know it, We were contacted and that item has been mailed to us.

Barbara we could not have stayed anywhere nicer!

Thank you for sharing your home with the travelers from Wisconsin!
